    almost everything on this list isn't a 'job', it's a class of occupation...

    This lack of available talent is common complaint of companies in Canada and the United States.

    If an organizations sole strategy is to rely on the “free agent” to fill their talent bench, they will place themselves at the mercy of the free market economy/pricing for such key talent. Given the need for great talent is outpacing he supply, more and more companies are looking inward to access and invest in emerging talent. This strategy is a prudent one as these organizations will not only reap the benefits of developing a pipeline of strong bench strength but, also have a higher degree of engagement and loyalty displayed by this talent versus the free agent.

    At Talent Matters, we provide outsourced human resources solutions that enable organizations to identify talent and develop that talent through designing and delivering cost effective customized leadership development programs. We have over a quarter century of human resources expertise that can be leveraged by growing and mature businesses to create a more capable and engaged workforce and reduce ones reliance on the free market “free agent”.

    Great companies invest by building capability from within and understand the risk of viewing human capital as a commodity that is subject to trade on the free market.

    Look to Talent Matters “” to support you with your talent development, talent acquisition and HR outsourced matters.

    I' m surpised to see teaching as one of the listed occupations. In Ontario there is a surplus of teahers both experienced and inexperienced who can not even get on the supply list let alone a full time

    Re: teaching - this is a national list so there are probably lots of rural shortages influencing those numbers. It's the same in lots of industries - everyone wants to live in the city so there's more competition.
